Using the Skills Analysis feature, you can analyze how you've assessed skills for several assignment columns over time for individual students—all from one easy-to-use interface.
- Do one of the following:
- Right-click a student's name, and then click Skills Analysis for (the student's name).
- Click the SK/ST button below the main navigation menu to open the Skill/Standards dialog box, then click Skill Analysis at the upper-left corner.
While viewing the Skills/Standards dialog box, right-click a student's name, and then click Skills Analysis for (the student's name).
The Skills Analysis dialog box lists all skills linked to the course as rows and all assignments linked to the skills as columns. The skill grades you've assigned appear in the cells corresponding to a skill and assignment. Skill grades are displayed per student at a time only. You can switch between students by using the arrow buttons located below the student's name at the upper-left corner.
To search for a specific student, type the student's name in the search box at the upper-right corner, and then select the student. Typing either the first or last name of the student reveals possible matches as soon as you type the name.
To edit/override a skill grade for an assignment or marking period, double-click the skill grade cell.
In order to edit a skill grade, the skill must be linked to the assignment. If the skill is not linked, the skill grade cell for the assignment will be gray and unavailable for editing. Also, if you override an individual assignment skill grade on the Skills Analysis dialog box, the marking period skill grade will be automatically recalculated (only if the skill grade setting section of the TeacherPlus Management Site is set to Skill Grades).
To display how a skill grade was calculated, right-click a grade in the Skill Grade column, and click Skill Grade Audit. Due to the complexity of the Power Law method, the values associated with each formula symbol don't show in the audit report.
